Menorah - for day 2 of Hanukkah Festival of Lights -eight-day Jewish holiday-Hanukkah received its name, the Feast of Dedication, because it celebrates the Maccabees' victory over Greek oppression and the rededication of the Temple. But Hanukkah is also known as the Festival of Lights, and this is because immediately following the miraculous deliverance, God provided another miracle of provision. In the Temple, the Menorah, eternal flame of God, was to be lit at all times as a symbol of God's presence. But according to tradition, when the Temple was rededicated, there was only enough oil left in the Temple to burn the flame for one day. The rest of the oil had been defiled by the Greeks during their invasion, and it would take a week for new oil to be processed and purified. But at the rededication, the Maccabees went ahead and lit the eternal flame with the remaining supply of oil, and God's Holy presence caused the Menorah to burn miraculously for eight days, until the new sacred oil was ready. A candle is lit each night at sundown during the eight days of Hanukkah to celebrate this Miracle
